POP account is an account from which we retrieve the mails from the mail server. Abuzar POP stands for Post Office Protocol. IMAP means Internet Message Access Protocol. These are the standard interfaces between an e-mail client program and the mail server. POP3 and IMAP4 are the two common access protocols used for Internet e-mail. POP3 provides message storage that saves incoming e-mail until users log on and download it. POP3 downloads the entire message with attachments when mail is checked. IMAP4 can be configured to download only the headers, which display to/from addresses and subject. The user can then selectively download messages and attachments. www.juniperavenue.com "POP" is pretty simple; that's an acronym for "Post Office Protocol". A communications "protocol" is just the language used between your email program, a POP client, and your ISP's mail - or POP - server.

"3" is even more boring. This is version 3 of the POP protocol. It underwent a few revisions before it became what it is today.

To configure a POP account you need three pieces of information:

*

The name of your ISP's mail server that holds your email. Typically it's something like "mail.example.com".

*

The name of the account you were assigned by your ISP. This may or may not be your email name, or something like it, or something completely unrelated.

*

The password to your account.

That's it. With that properly configured, you can download the email that your ISP has been collecting on your behalf.

Sending mail uses a different protocol, SMTP, which stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. Again, another language used between your email program, an SMTP client, and the SMTP server to which you will send your email.

Typically your SMTP server will be the same as your POP3 server, though that's not always the case. If so, it doesn't really imply that the two are related, just that the same machine is acting as a server for both protocols.

Like POP3, the SMTP server may require you to log in first; often with the same account information that the POP3 server used. (If it doesn't require you to authenticate somehow, it's called an "open relay" and may be a major contributor to internet spam.)

So to configure your outgoing mail, you'll specify the name of the outgoing server, and possibly the login information it will use.

And finally, note that all of this really applies only to email programs that you run on your own computer, like Outlook, Eudora and others. Web-based email, such as Hotmail, Yahoo and the like, simply display the email directly from their servers in your web browser - no configuration needed, other than logging in.

It is used for fetching email from the main mail server. For example if you have a POP 3 account (mostly provided by ISP). Then you can directly fetch your emails to some desktop application (like outlook express, thunderbird) instead of going to any website. BTW gmail provides POP 3 service for free. .
